ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Richard Price, the award-winning ‘Carcanet’ poet combines with Caroline Trettine, composer/singer-song-writer, protégée of Billy Bragg, to play pop-art-alt-indie-folk. 'Age of exploration’ features Fyfe Dangerfield from the Mercury Prize shortlisted band ‘Guillemots’.

Richard Price is a novelist and poet. His first novel, 'The Island', is ‘a story of rare qualities that many writers aim for and few achieve. Read it — it’ll be one of the most beautiful nightmares you’ll ever have.’ – Toby Litt.
His poetry collections include 'Lucky Day', 'Greenfields', and 'Rays'.
His poems ‘are clear, witty, intelligent, versatile and often highly moving; superb examples of a hard-earned surface simplicity conveying oceanic depths of feeling and thought.’ – The Guardian.

Caroline Trettine, a former singer-writer with 'The Blue Areoplanes', achieved cult success with her record 'Be a Devil' on Billy Bragg and Pete Jenner's seminal 'Utility' label. She writes songs, beats, string arrangements, musicals and poetry for alt-art-indie pop/rock/folk.

'Like [Sandy] Denny, Trettine hovers over great melancholy with an almost detached air that only cuts closer to the quick‘ **** Q Magazine
‘Caroline has pursued one of the most interesting and engaging of paths in music with a vision that is as eclectic as it is heartfelt, you would do well to follow her.‘ Doug Darcy
